  3. I'm excited about this challenge. Not sure yet if I'm going to join, but I will definitely being following. Much success to every one as they work towards their goals.

  4. Im so excited i cant wait to submit my video

  5. I have been preparing myself to lose the weight and I am so excited to do this challenge...I really think its gonna keep me motivated...anyone have any tips on what they are going to do to lose weight??

  6. Super excited about this challenge, I too wanted to lose weight in the New Year but this challenge definitely gives me the boost I need and hopefully I can get support from others =) super excited Good Luck 2 all I will try to post a video tomorrow.

  7. Hm. I think this sounds a little unhealthy. I mean, most bodies aren't equipped to drop that much weight that fast. I just fear that it will get out of hand and someone could get really hurt. I would love to drop 20 lbs, don't get me wrong, but in 2 months? I'm a bit iffy on that

  8. The challenge isnt about losing 20 lbs...everyone has many different goals but I read that losing 2lbs a week is totally healthy for you and that would almost be 20lbs in the two month period. I lost 16 lbs in a month by running a mile everyday and that is how I started my weight loss journey :)

  9. @ julia it depends on the tend to drop weight faster if you are heavier so 20 pounds for you may be harder to lose than 20 lbs for someone else. also it is mentioned above and in the info. vid on Q's channel that its not about the amount of physical weight you lose. it's a mental challenge as well. the winner will be who has the best changes in weight mentally and overall...ther's nothing unhealthy about that!

    anyway Good luck ladies i'm super duper excited and i cant wait to watch my body transform. i look forward to seeing your changes as well...blessings and love <3

  10. (D8Mathilda) I'll be recording my video tonight!!! Even got one of the shoes that Cici mentioned on one of her videos! :3 I can't wait to see everyone's results!!! <3

  11. Just kicked my own arse and posted my video! Can't to see how everyone does! - BloodyCherryCherie

  12. Good luck to everyone. I know this is going to be a struggle but I will haved a positive attitude about this challenge. I wish everyone luck!

  13. So excited!!! Posting that vid in my workout bra and boyshorts was one of the ballsiest things that I've ever done! My friends can see the growth and that makes me happy " )
